When I'm in London I binge on theatre, five nights a week. If there's no theatre, however, I like Quaglino's restaurant, 16 Bury St, SW1 (071- 930 6767). The acoustics are dreadful, but it's a place to be seen, and there's a wonderful staircase for entering down. The best seats are in the centre. The food is what I call Californian - everything from caviar to fish and chips, and steamed spinach to die for. A couple having, say, the house champagne, can get out for about pounds 80. Everyone's going to the Atlantic Bar and Grill at the moment, a huge bar near Piccadilly, 20 Glasshouse St, W1 (071-734 4888) but I can't bear cigarette smoke so I don't go out dancing much any more. Of course I won't do any of these things when I open my Avengers Studio Kafe in Covent Garden in spring 1995 because it will provide them all - TV studio, dance floor, champagne bar. . . it'll be the first Sixties- themed bar in London, and I'll be seen there every evening, looking after people.
